But you know when you sew the petals and all. ummmm do you sew the zip sides or so you sew closer to ther other end.. weird question but yeah. do you poke your needle right next to the zip or on the other die?? anyopne know what i mean?? hehehe sorrryyyy

Hi,

They're really beautiful.  What size zipper did you use for the purple one.  It looks very long.

I use  a 45cm size (I think  17.7 in Huh). It's quite long! I try also with 2 zip: 1 for the base and 1 for the central crown.
